ISA TanTec Progresses with the Expansion of the Existing Saigon Facility

Following the recent opening of its Saigon Showroom, ISA TanTec reports on the progress of the further expansion of its existing tannery Saigon TanTec in Binh Duong province in order to meet the growing demand for its eco-friendly LITE leather.

The expansion will boost Saigon TanTec’s production capacity above 6 million square feet per month through the optimization of the production layout, a new warehouse facility and investing in additional production equipment.

“We are investing into the latest technology of production machines. Following concepts like the VNA (Very Narrow Aisle) shelving system and therefore making full use of the floor area and the height, the storage capacity of the new warehouse facility will be maximized and additional space for the workflow on the floor generated”, says Uwe Hutzler, CEO, ISA TanTec.

“The significant addition to the capacity is a necessary step to further facilitate the business growth strategy. The project is expected to be completed by the first quarter 2019, right before the peak season and at the same time, the new final quality control, office and canteen for our employees will be in place.” Said Tiago Horn, COO Asia, ISA TanTec

ISA TanTec is committed to a high standard of ongoing environmental excellence and sustainability in the tanning industry. This expansion project was planned with the intention to preserve ISA’s core value of environmental advocacy and will preserve the entire rain water lagoon as well as all other environmental friendly features like the wetlands.

ISA TanTec was founded in 1995 and currently has 4-ultra modern tanneries located in the USA, Vietnam, China and Italy. In 2016, Navis Capital Partners co-invested with ISA as a strategic partner to support the further growth ambitions of ISA TanTec.
